KURT STRUMPF/Associated Press

The Brazilian national team is almost a synonym with world-class footballers.

In every World Cup roster of the Verde Amarela, it is virtually impossible not to find at least two or three of the best players of its time. It is almost a certainty to say that if you shine with Brazil, you are a world star.

Through its record five world championships and being the only team never to miss a World Cup, Brazil's history is full of legendary players. In which other national team ranking will you have to leave out Leonidas, Zizinho, Djalma Santos, Nilton Santos, Didi, Zagallo, Amarildo, Jairzinho, Tostao, Gerson, Falcao, Bebeto, Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldinho and many others?

Here are Brazil's 10 greatest World Cup stars of all time.
